    Incomplete/modified GPL license text in license.txt

    It would also be useful to clarify the status of data pulled from the boardgamegeek.com database.

    Hi,
    the plugin use the BGG XML API to fetch data. Here you can read term and conditions.

    The plugin is distributed with the MIT license.

    I have update the plugin to reflect this information.

    Thanks!

    You probably should add the BGG XML API info in a readme.txt distributed with the plugin.

    Also, I think you have to update license.txt to include the full MIT or GPL license text.

    Hi,
    I already update readme.txt and license.txt distributed with the plugin.

    You can download here
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/boardgamegeekinfos.1.0.0.zip

    The license.txt include the MIT license founded here
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License

    or here
    http://www.opensource.org/licenses/mit-license.php

    Is there another version?

    Thanks!

    That's perfect. I'm delighted to be able to use your plugin on my game review site.
